WhatsNewJakarta was very pleased to come and be the witness of TWG Tea Salons signature tea-infused savoury dishes and patisseries, and enjoy the decorated nostalgic furnishings, accented by fine bone china, crisp linens and vases of brightly-hued exotic blooms.


Ms. Gyscha and Ms. Trixie welcomed us friendly, it was a gloomy noon and I think it’s a perfect time to do the review of some single estate fine harvest teas and exclusive blends, as well as tea patisseries and other tea infused delicacies.

We were introduced to some of their flagship product, which of course contains tea. The two humble women offered me to have some tea. And with TWG Tea’s collection numbers well over 800 different single estate harvests and exclusive tea blends from every tea producing country in the world, I think I’ll just leave it to them to decide.


To be able to understand the ever-changing tastes of tea drinkers, TWG Tea offers limited edition teas and seasonal blends as well. It is also constantly sourcing, innovating, expanding and refining the teas in its collection.


I was introduced to some tea whose names are quite interesting, such as White House Tea – Pai Mu Tan (white tea), this tea is quite low in theine, contains vitamin C and anti oxidants. This white tea blends with ripe berries and fragrant rose. Can you imagine how the smell? It’s awesome! And there’s Earl Grey Gentleman Tea – Black Tea from Ceylon, balanced with TWG bergamot, yields a citrus aroma and an enduring and refreshing aftertaste. This tea is really can refresh your day after a rush hour of working. I also had the 1837 Black Tea – Signature TWG black tea, blended with berries and sweet spices. It yields a sweet taste from the caramel, and refreshing taste from the ripe berries. 

TWG Tea’s loose-leaf teas are sold by weight, starting at 50 grams. A limited variety of single estate and special blends are also available in hand-sewn, 100% cotton teabags which are individually packaged and sold in boxes of 15. Unlike paper teabags, cotton teabags do not absorb the flavour of the tea, thereby allowing the full fragrance of each tea to develop. Specially packaged tea gifts, presented in uniquely designed tea canisters, are also available. 


Sweet Secret Salad was our starter, very surprised with the Secret of Vietnam Tea infused. The type of tea of course is the most suitable and also the levels are not excessive so the food taste still delicious. The sweet secret salad contains with Smoked Scottish salmon served with avocado, tomatoes, and arugula delicately enhanced by the flavours of fresh strawberries. Very fresh!


Another perfection through the day was the Canadian Scallops Gratin. Pan-seared to perfection and gratin finished with vinegar candied shallots, figs truffle, crispy beef bacon, artichoke flan, served with a saffron hollandaise and cream infused with Coconut Tea.


One thing that surprising is this place also serving heavy meals. Yup, I try the Wagyu Burger. Grilled 9+ Wagyu beef burger with lettuce, tomato, and Emmental cheese topped with horseradish mayonnaise and served on a homemade bun, accompanied by matchstick potatoes and mesclun salad tossed in 1837 Green Tea infused vinaigrette. It was awesome! The beef was very light to bite and the savory bun makes more perfect.


This Chilean Sea Bass caught my eye when the waiter put this beautiful dressing plate on my table. Pan-roasted Chilean sea bass fillet served with parsnip puree, red beet carpaccio, sautéed wild mushrooms, asparagus and a Passion Fruit Tea infused muscatel au jus. Whoa! This sea bass really smooth and the marinade was very united.


Also on the menu, TWG Tea Macarons, renowned for their crispy almond biscuit with a soft centre infused with signature teas, available in 10 mouth-watering flavors, TWG Tea has transformed the macaron into a uniquely memorable confection.

The TWG Tea team shapes the aesthetic image underpinning all the brand’s products, constantly updating the notion of TWG Tea even as they respect the Asian and European traditions of elegance and beauty on which it is based, now spiced with a touch of sensuality and originality.
